Transportation in Iceland

Transport iceland has been developed extensively to handle the cargo an d passenger transportation needs. Iceland is located midway between Europe and North America and is highly dependent for both its imports and exports. Iceland transport has its air and maritime capacities being increased.

Traveling around in Iceland is easy during the summer but can be difficult during winter. The domestic airlines provide the only reliable form of transport in the winter when snow and ice cover the land. In summer, the airlines have daily flights between Reykjavík and most major destinations. Local transport includes taxis, which can also be hired for sightseeing, and municipal buses.

Transport iceland has no railways and its highway system is the least-developed in Europe. However, Bifreiðastöð Íslands (BSÍ), a collective organization of long-distance bus lines, does a neat job of covering the country with a sufficient, though inconvenient, network. There are also a number of ferry services connecting ports. With its unsurfaced roads, steep hills and inclement weather, Iceland is hardly a cyclist's dream. However, an increasing number of visitors are trying it, and bikes can be rented in most urban centres, hotels, hostels and guesthouses. While visiting the country one can opt for transport iceland which suits one’s needs.

Air: Icelandair, the national carrier, has regular and direct flights to Europe and the USA. For cheaper airfares, one can try Iceland Express, a low cost airline with daily flights from Reykjavik to London (Stansted) and Copenhagen.

Ferry: Another way to travel between Europe and Iceland is by ferry, although it takes a lot more time and costs almost as much as a flight. A ferry service operates from late May to early September. A number of islands and fjords are linked by ferries which operate year-round. If you are traveling by car it is advisable to make a prior reservation for your vehicle. Should you wish for a private cabin, a reservation should also be made in advance. Ferries operate year-round in Iceland.

Cars: Car-rental agencies are found in most major towns, and rates are almost bearable until you add excess kilometres, compulsory insurance and some of the world's most expensive petrol to the price.
